Baking in Vermont

Filed under: bread — fehlhaber @ 9:59 pm

Another great class at King Arthur Flour.  “Baking Bread in Wood Fired Ovens” by Richard Miscovich.  We made pizza on Friday night and on Saturday made pitas, two types of levain (sourdough) , and ciabatta.  Here are a few photos.

This was the first real baking to happen in this oven, a William Davenport creation.

We were told about a Quebec-style community oven in Norwich, so after class, we went to go check it out.  Looks like a great set-up.

Back at class on Saturday —

Richard demonstrates how to get the peels ready for fast loading.  The oven held 15+ loaves.

We did some baking in the fancy Matador Deck Ovens as well —
